Mousekin's Family: 10/06/07
Mousekin's Family is another of last month's set of books that I donated to Sean's school. The illustrations are the best part of the book. They are vivid and charming.
The story itself is one of a young mousekin parent who is wondering how to teach the first litter of offspring how to survive outside the nest in the tree.
While wondering about how best to go about the lessons, mousekin runs into a group of other babies. Mousekin tries out the life lessons on these youngsters while in secret the mousekin family watches.
Were it not for the beautiful illustrations the story would be rather dry. The text failed to capture my imagination and interest.
